Challenge yourself...

Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned competitor, climbing competitions can be a fun and effective way to improve your skills. A note to our regular competitors, the calender of events was changed in 2020 after extensive consultation and the time of year each event takes place has been altered as indicated below.

Open / Adult Comps

The 4-Nations Series

This exciting new competition series combines the National Championships across the UK and Ireland and was first started in 2022. It uses the already established events in Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and adds new championships in England. Bouldering and lead are seperate. There are already many competitors who travel to compete in the championships outside their own country, and this will allow their results to act as an additional part of the GB Climbing performance pathway. It will, as it has always done, enable competitors to meet new friends and visit different climbing centres but also now find out their ranking across a greater number of competitors at National level.
